WRM Podcast: Many “Much Ado”s

Good morrow fair recyclers!

Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing was just given a limited release in theaters, so we thought it was a great time to class up the blog a bit by featuring the Bard himself! We talk Shakespeare’s original play, Kenneth Branagh’s famous 1993 film, and of course Whedon’s new version. Plus, as a bonus, Drew and Anne recite some Shakespearean monologues of their own. With ad-libs. It’s more slapstick than sophisticated on this podcast.

Listen to the podcast on iTunes here, or on podbean here.

This Month’s Trivia Question: Anne Baxter is best known for her portrayal of Eve in All About Eve, but in fact she had a long career before and after this film. In fact, one of her first roles on Broadway was in a play with Katherine Hepburn. What was the play, and what was Anne Baxter’s role? (Hint: She shares the role with a very young Anna Kendrick in the musical adaptation.)
